Many business leaders in small and midsized cities around the U.S. are perplexed that a debate over remote working continues in larger cities, Emma Goldberg writes in the New York Times. “Almost everybody I know is in an office most of the time here,” said Grant Blosser, 35, who works at a financial services firm in Columbus, Ohio. “The headlines that I read about as far as people dragging their feet going back to the office are about select companies and select cities.” The regional gap in return-to-office patterns is discernible in the share of online job postings that permit remote work. In San Francisco, 26% of job postings now allow for remote work, and in New York, 19% do. In Columbus, just 13% of job postings permit remote work; in Houston, the number is 12.6%, and in Birmingham, Ala., it is just 10.4%, according to research cited in the piece.
